Rain In The Rotunda!

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but this video...is worth a million.

At 4:30 PM Friday, August 5, downtown Springfield experienced a brief, but torrential rain. The good news is that the theatre's new roof performed flawlessly and the theatre was in the dry. The bad news is that the rotunda where the chandelier resides had a massive breach of some type that we are still investigating.

The theatre itself is intact and theatre programming will proceed, but the interior lobby and rotunda are challenged. The price tag for repairs and restoration of this landmark space remains unclear. What is clear is there will be unbudgeted expenses above insurance coverage.

What is equally clear is that the Gillioz is poised for a great run of programming for the remainder of 2022 and into 2023, so these repairs are critical and time-sensitive. Your support is crucial to seeing our non-profit mission continue to preserve the past, celebrate community and make memories.

Please consider making a gift to support YOUR Historic Gillioz as we recover from the significant rain damage we are facing and as always, THANK YOU for the ongoing support.

We look forward to seeing YOU at the show!
